, let's end it with humor courtesy of jon stewart who offered the special take on a serious candidate tim pawlenty campaign. let's watch. >> well, let's see where governor tim pawlenty is. he has $4.5 million raised this quarter, but he struggles against the perception that he is -- former minnesota governor tim pawlenty kicked off three weeks of barnstorming in the anticipated fox straw poll with a warning that iowans should not waste their support on charismatic candidates who cannot win. >> ooh, tim pawlenty taking a bold stand against charisma. [ laughter ] hey, look, this is not a popularity contest. oh, it is? oh. >> will anyone in this field inspire the conservative voters or do we have the wait for someone like sarah palin or donald trum tp to have the charisma that jon stewart was f stewart. i think secondly, governor pawlenty has a point, we should be voting on records which means we shouldn't be voting for pawlenty. >> connie shorts on this hot friday. thank you very much. >> reporter: thank you. >>> now to the state of the american family and three new studies which show t
. and the beltway bashing, though, seems to be pushing the 2012 candidates to kick it up a notch. jon huntsman hitting mitt romney for not speaking out on anything that's going on in washington this week, and, of course, tim pawlenty on a daily rant against michele bachmann. bottom line on that one is that we're two weeks and going to chronicle all this pap huge test for a couple of candidates. namely, tim pawlenty and michele bachmann. >>> with the clock ticking lawmakers are exhausting. the public is fed up. check out the headlines this morning. "usa today," drama muddles debt fate.

but not taking part in the ames straw poll. jon huntsman is the same way. viewing iowa not necessary to his path. is that a dangerous move? >> i think is it very dangerous. if you look to the last cycle and think what happened with rudy giuliani and the guys that decided we can bypass the social conservative, a fool's game. you don't gain momentum. south carolina is sitting right there and south carolina is going to bring back the social conservative issues. by the way, rick perry is a guy who is strong on abortion. a guy who has a strong position in gay marriage and he appeals to the social conservative. if he is there with the money he's a major player. >> bret: agree? >> yeah, the potential is he invites somebody else to the dance not making a big play in iowa. if he made a big play and won it, won caucus, it could be over before it started. it makes strategic sense on one level that he dumps resources in there and had nothing to show for it except for embarrassment to overcome the rest of it there is a risk there from a front-runner to skip an early state. >> bret: we haven't talked about sa
is as arresting as that of jon huntsman and newt gingrich both of whom have ridden off into the sunset. >> definitely. pawlenty has had a problem with not being terribly charismatic and he the black hole of charisma in some ways, and at this point he is falling in the polls, and he was not high up to begin with, so he needs to do something to get his name out there. and you know, he had a problem at the debate when he refused to stand by his comments about mitt romney and people were questioning whether he was tough enough for this. this is not a problem for bachmann, because nobody questions whether she is tough enough. >> absolutely. >> so this is another moment where he needs to either stand up and make a name for himself or he might as well hang it up and go home. >> speaking of michele bachmann, and this pray away the gay story and her husband, it doesn't seem to go away, does it? it gained more fuel after video surfaced of gay barbarians going to the clinic and making a scene. last week marcus bachmann said he is neither homophobic nor converting a gay orientation, but it appears
, quickly. politico is reporting this, the campaign manager for jon huntsman is leaving her post, quitting. politico reporting the former utah governor is retooling his campaign. staff changes have to do with entering a more aggressive phase. they could do that. >> more aggressive. >> it's easy. it's not the best. the idea of running for president and the reality of doing it heads that way. the campaigns shuffle. >> i think if you sell that, governor, you could sell that as could i. i think jon huntsman may want to speak above a whisper. that may help. >> there's overcorrecting. >> well, with perry out there looming large you better claim your ground now. >> is perry getting in? >> he will. >> first moves. >> come on. >> he bounces around. >> yes. >> he's still a bad imitation of will ferrell imitating george w. bush. >> it's true. i sit there watching this guy go on. i'm like is this an "snl" -- i keep waiting for "snl" to go across the bottom. seriously. >> you guys are terrible. >> no. no. >> come on. >> i know we hear he's doing great and more jobs and taxes than on the planet in $8 bi
and jon kyl supports, so that's plan "b." how quickly does the president back off? does he say, no, let's roll that one out, too, i really want this big deal, let's go? or does he basically back down and show he was being a tough negotiator for four days? >> some of the corporate guys will say, well, you know, it takes four or five times saying no before you may get to a deal, so we'll see. we'll set up this meeting a little bit more after we take a break. but we'll take a break here and when we come back, we'll have our "trends & takeaways," a look at what we said today that was news-worthy and what to look for in the coming week, plus, the hot political stories trending this morning. >>> final moments now with our i >>> final moments now with our roundtable here, and i want to go to our hot trending stories this morning, our "trend tracker." we'll put it up on the screen. not surprisingly, it is this debt standoff that is still number one, this impasse we'll be watching all day. two, the conservative marriage pledge i talked about with governor pawlenty, this in iowa. third is panetta

.2 million and jon huntsman with $4.1 million. trailing them, herman cain with $2.5 million, newt gingrich 2 million. michele bachman will release hers later. >> which candidate should be excited? ron paul is incredible. which should be more concerned? >> no one on the list should be excited about their numbers. mitt romney, by virtue of the fact he's so far ahead has the least reason to be freaked out. the story of the fund raising of all these numbers is the story of closed wallets and the story of how -- >> yes, some are waiting still. >> so much of the republican donor class is still sitting with checkbooks closed, unhappy with the field, not writing checks, still waiting for something. i don't know what. they have not been -- this is not a show of great enthusiasm. the president is vulnerable. they work in the field and they are not thrilled about any of these guys. >> an incredible time of opportunity, that is sure. >> for a lot of that quarter, tim pawlenty was considered a front-runner. he was the alternative to mitt romney. that pitch didn't resinate at all. he's closer to raising m
